Millie Cross knows what it's like to burn for someone. She was young and wild and he was fierce and even wilder-a Chaos biker who made her heart pound. They fell in love at first sight and life was good, until she learned she couldn't be the woman he needed and made it so he had no choice but to walk away. Twenty years later, Millie's chance run-in with her old flame sparks a desire she just can't ignore. And this time, she won't let him ride off . . .
Bad boy Logan "High" Judd has seen his share of troubles with the law. Yet it was a beautiful woman who broke him. After ending a loveless marriage, High is shocked when his true love walks back into his life. Millie is still gorgeous, but she's just a ghost of her former self. High's intrigued at the change, but her betrayal cut him deep-and he doesn't want to get burned again. As High sinks into meting out vengeance for Millie's betrayal, he'll break all over again when he realizes just how Millie walked through fire for her man . . .
Kristen Ashley fourth book of the Chaos series, Walk Through Fire did not disappoint. I absolutely love Kristen’s books; they are automatic preorders as soon as the link goes up. For me, Walk Through Fire was a 5++++ book and quickly became one of my top favorites of her series. Walk Through Fire focused on “High” Logan Judd, a Chaos MC club member that had been mentioned previously in books. Mille and Logan had a story-book beginning. It was love at first site for them when they met at a party in their 20’s. In a hurry to get married and begin their lives and building their family, Mille even was on track to graduate from college early so that they could start but, that didn’t end-up happening. Now, 20 years later, Millie catches a glimpse of Logan one evening at a Chipotle. She over-hears his conversation leaving her to believe he is in the process of getting divorced and has children with his soon to be ex-wife. Seeing Logan and hearing about his wonderful life sends Millie into complete meltdown. Although Millie is somewhat freaked-out, she decides to find Logan and express her happiness that it sounded like he had lived a good life for the past 20 years. Little did Millie know, this reunion starts a whole chain of events and has Logan charging back into her life.
As I mentioned earlier, I think this one of my top favorites of Kristen Ashley’s (that is until her next book comes out). First of all, I loved that the characters are older. Not some coming-of-age young adult. As with many of her novels, Kristen Ashley’s characters have lived life, had relationships, kids, ex-lovers, and so on. This was the case with Logan and Mille. They had both made mistakes but they were willing to forgive each other and others in their lives, and move forward toward the future. The book really focused on Logan and Millie’s relationship, how it began, where it progressed to , and where we as readers were able to express where they were going through reading the book. There is just enough Chaos MC club to keep things interesting too. It was amazing that Logan and Millie never fell out of love with each other, and once everything was out in the open, they were able to pick-up right where they left off. It was just an amazing story and it didn’t hurt that familiar characters from other novels made appearances. (I love how Kristen does that in all her novels). This is a definite read for any Kristen Ashley fan.
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
